Stopped in on a chance

I stopped in and grabbed something to eat since it was right next to my hotel. I was surprised at how good the food was when I brought it back to my room. The tacos were delicious and the soup was hot. I recommend it.

Taco Palenque,in Weslaco,TX is one of the newest(not even on the trip advisor list yet) and best in the Rio Grande Valley. It is located off "Texas Blvd" exit if you heading West on Hiway 83(again in Weslaco NOT MCALLEN). It is right in front of a Motel 6 which looks new as well. The difference between this Taco Palenque... More

My all time favorite in the RGV, stopping by this location is always a must. However all the locations have same menu and most important the same flavor. My favorites: fajitas tacos, quesadillas , Panchos. New favorite is pirata taco :-) enjoy ! Free chips and salsa bar is the best !

This place is a must if in the McAllen area. The quality and taste of the food is well worth the price! You won't regret it!

The Taco Palenque is really tasty freshly cooked to order Mexican or TEX MEX food. The Fajitas and Breakfast Tacos are very tasty and served quickly even when they are busy. The Value is great. A number of fellow travelers mention the restraint and it has many locations in the Rio Grande Valley. The service is quick and very pleasant... More

The best Fajita Panchos. Lots of cheese and beans. Served with a scoop of Guacamole for under $10.00 including tax. Fideo soup is the best in the Valley.

I am a Mexican food aficionado, and usually prefer the hole-in-the-wall places. When I'm in the SW, I look for real menudo that I can't get up north. Taco Palenque was close and had menudo 24 hrs. so I went. It's more of a fast food place with a drive-thru, but the menudo was excellent! Some of the best I've... More

Living in Minnesota, it's hard to find anything but chain restaurants. The best for Tex Mex would most likely be Chipotle and Q'doba. But wow they just don't compare with the tacos at Taco Palenque. Perfect late night stop after hanging out at one of the local bars. The food quality is top notch with plenty of fresh salsas and... More

Love their breakfast tacos and their crispy tacos! They move cars in and out quickly. Left my cell phone one day and the waiter had it for me!!! Great restaurant. Gives El Pato a run for their money:)
